Taff came to my hotel and off we went, first got coffee. Taff is very personable and knowledgable about the history of the Third Reich, and the role played by Munich. If (when!) I get back to Munich, I'll use him again. Excellent tour.

This tour gave us a true insight into 20th century history in Munich which is generally not spoken about in this city. It was very interesting to see the places where some of the most significant moments in modern history happened. Taff was a great...More
